College can be a vastly significant adventure in one's life; it is a chance for individual growth and expansion. Students attempt to find out their calling and learn many of the underlying skills to become a successful member of society. But growth is not exclusively confined to a classroom - the late nights discussing Adam Smith with a schoolmate, the wild anecdote learned from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different approach. Therefore, finding a diverse college vastly enriches what you gain from your time spent in university.

Sales and Merchandising is a less racially diverse focus than average*. 72% of the United States' Sales and Merchandising majors are white students, followed by latino students (9%), students of other races**(7%), and asian students (6%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is University of Houston&nbspin Houston, TX.

Moreover, Sales and Merchandising slightly skews male, with more or less three in seven majors identifying as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Barry University in Miami, FL.

Another significant type of diversity is income diversity. Sales and Merchandising is more financially diverse than 73% of majors. 29% of its students come from households that make north of $110,000 per year, 17% are from families taking in between $75,000 and $110,000 a year, and 24% grew up in homes with a sub $30,000 income.
